Volunteers Required
We currently are looking for Cub and Scout leaders as well as looking for the prospect of expanding to two Beavers/Cubs as the number on the waiting list is huge. If you are willing to volunteer to be a Cub/Scout leader or willing to start up a second Beaver colony/Cub pack, please get in contact with us, via our contact us page.

  • Sainsbury's Active Kids Vouchers 2017
    Thank you for collecting Sainsbury's Active Kids vouchers. This year we collected 2811 vouchers which is unfortunately a reduction in last years total, so aim for more next year. We have bought some more cooking pots with foldaway handles, a target game and some sack race hoppers.

  • Remembrance Weekend

    We will selling poppies in Watling Street in aid of Royal British Legion on Saturday 11th November. We will be based by the War Memorial.  We will be selling between 10.45am and 2pm, so Beavers, Cubs and Scouts could come for ½ hour – 1 hour slots in uniform. At 11.00am we will hold two minutes silence to mark Armistice Day, so please arrive before/after this. Anyone under 14 will need an adult with them, some leaders will be present but any parents who can help would be greatly appreciated.
    Then on Sunday 13th November we will again be parading along Watling Street, with other Scouts and Guides to the War Memorial and take part in the Act of Remembrance.  Please could your child attend in his uniform with a poppy, if cold please wear extra layers under the uniform so it can be seen, rather than hidden under a coat. We will meet at the Radlett Centre at 10:15 ready to march to the War Memorial at 10.30 where the service will begin at 10:45. This is an opportunity for us as a Scout group to be seen working in the community, so it would be good to see as many Beavers, Cubs and Scouts as possible.

  • Quiz Night!
    We invite all to our biggest fundraiser of the year a Quiz Night on Friday 10th November. Letters have gone out to all sections this week, so please support us by making up a team for a fun evening out. We have had a team of Scouts in the past so it would be great if some youngsters came as well. Tickets cost £10 and include supper.
    We need a couple of extra parents to join our fundraising team to help organise the evening. Fiona is quizmaster, we need help with setting up the hall and running a raffle or providing a dish of food. If you can help with this please let Jackie know on info@1stradlettscouts.org.uk.

  • Scout Clear Up - Saturday 16 September 10-12
    Thank you to everyone who attended on Sunday to clear the grounds around the HQ we had a brilliant turn out and a lot was achieved.
    This Saturday between 10-12 we are planning to clear the inside of the hall, washing down walls, cleaning windows, checking and cleaning the heaters, clearing the kitchen etc
    It would be lovely to see as many of you as possible. Please bring any equipment you feel would be useful for helping to spring clean the building

  • Clear Up - Sunday 10 September 2-4
    Please come and help us at our Clear Up this Sunday from 2-4. We need to get the fire escape clear before the start of term, so all the members of the Scout group have a safe way to leave the building in an emergency. Therefore we need as many people as possible with secateurs and shears to cut back the brambles and other weeds on Sunday afternoon. Strong gloves would also be recommended. There are also a number of other cleaning jobs to do inside the building this Sunday and our other date Saturday 16th September from 10-12. Please try and make at least one of these dates.

  • September Update

    Welcome to another year in 1st Radlett Scout Group

    As you may be aware the nursery who used the HQ during the day unfortunately closed at the end of the summer term, as they could not sustain the nursery on the hours of permitted nursery use.  We have therefore lost a large amount of our income and partly due to this and the increase in costs we have had to increase our termly subscriptions.  If anyone has financial hardship please speak to Jackie.

    Now the hall has been cleared there are some cleaning jobs that need to be done and we have also noticed that the path around the back of the building by the fire escape has become very overgrown. We obviously want this clear the fire escape before the start of term so we would like to have a working party to clear this and also do the inside cleaning, with as many adults as possible on Sunday 10th September from 2-4 pm and also on Saturday 16th September from 10-12.  Please try and attend at least one of these dates as many hands make light work.

    The Group Executive Committee are also seeking parents to help with fundraising and support with maintaining the building. If you are willing to join us, we generally meet 4 times a year.

  • Chair's Report & Radlett Festival 2017

    Dear All

    Thank you to everyone who attended our Celebration Evening last week, as you would have heard from our Chair we need to do more fundraising to enable us to do improvements to our Headquarters which is now 50 years old. A copy of her report for those who were unable to attend is attached to this post.

    If anyone has an ideas for fundraising we would love to hear from you and we could do with a couple of extra people on our committee to run fundraising events.

    Our first opportunity to raise funds is at the Radlett Festival on Sunday 11 June where we will joining forces with the Guides to run the refreshment tent. We need lots of volunteers to run this from 12 noon to 5 pm, as well as donations of large and small cakes preferably homemade. Your child should bring a letter home from their meeting asking for help and there is a sign up sheet on the door to the hall for you to add your name too.

    If your employer can match funds to help us raise more then we would love to hear from you as well.

    We also need some adults to help erect and take down the mess tent on the day, we usually need it up at 9am and take it down at 5.30pm and many hands make light work.

    As you will see from Sarah’s report there is a real chance that the Scout troop will close at the end of term if we do not sufficient numbers of volunteers for it to continue. Please help with spreading the word.

    Finally is anyone involved in the group a surveyor as would like to plan future works on the building and would appreciate the input of a surveyor.

    on behalf the Group Executive committee

  • Celebration Evening
    Dear All
    Thank you to the leaders who helped at the St Georges Day event yesterday and it was nice to see all of those who came and enjoyed the afternoon. But it was the case that we had a small turnout from our group, which we were disappointed with since this is one of the dates we ask all members to attend. The leaders are all volunteers and give up their time to run events for your children and it is disheartening that all the hard work is only appreciated by a few.
    This Wednesday (26th April) we have our Celebration Evening when all Beavers, Cubs, Scouts and their parents/carers and siblings are invited to an entertaining evening to celebrate Scouting in Radlett over the last year. We expect to see most of you there for a fun evening with refreshments and an opportunity to find out more about the Scout Group. The event is at Kent Lodge from 6-7:30pm incorporating a short AGM and marking 50 years of Kent Lodge. There will fun games and activities for the Beavers and Cubs led by the Scouts.  As last year there will be small charges for some games and the refreshments, including a small barbecue and wine or soft drinks, as a fundraising opportunity. There will also be a cake sale, so please do bring a cake for the sale. The leaders will be present but will be unable to supervise all children.
